Forum: etree Subject: Share Alike Question

I'm slightly confused by the "Share Alike" clause on many of the licenses.

I'm a filmmaker. I'm working on a short film and am trying to find something suitable for my film as far as music. I fully plan on entering said film into different festivals in the hopes of getting my work recognized, however, would the Share Alike clause keep me from doing so? I'm confused if share alike means I just must add my work to the archive or if I can add it ONLY to the archive and not enter any festivals with my work? Anyone know?

Share alike means that derivative works are permitted under the condition that further those derivative works are also share alike.

Im no lawyer ... but i'm 99.9% sure this means you have allow your work to be freely distributed (ie put it under a creative commons licence) ... for instance you could not sell DVDs of your film with the music under a shar-a-like licence and not allow people to freely copy it. If that does'nt aswer your question i'd check out the creative commons wesite and se if that can answer your question.
